Type Semi-Private
The Genoa Lakes Golf Club's Lakes Course brings water into Lake Tahoe-Reno golf. It's found on 14 of the 18 hole on the Lakes Course and it's not always nice tame water of staid old country clubs either. Sometimes you'll be shooting over near swamps with tall gnarly grasses poking out of them. That's the Lakes Course. It's one of the more natural settings in an area known for its nature settings. You'll see cows along the border of the course - and birds will come flying up that you probably can't identify. Lakes Course is a Peter Jacobsen and John Harbottle III design with rolling fairways, some tight shot openings and good views. It's 7,359 yards of golf with the Carson River and wetlands riding shotgun. It's located in Carson Valley, an often forgotten town, that's right inbetween the big gaming spots of Reno and Lake Tahoe. That makes Genoa Lakes Golf Club a pretty easy course to get to from most of the popular areas in the High Sierras.

Great Course

It is a very good course. One of us is a single digit index and long off the tee. The other is a 24 index with a low drive trajectory. it would be very helpful to know the needed carry on drives. Another suggestion would be a blend of the whites and blues depending on needed carry off the tee. Great course and great facility.

Nice greens

I last played this course about 3-4 years ago. Today, I was disappointed to see the fairways drying up. Most of the ruff areas were mowed so it was not too difficult to find your ball. The greens had a nice feel; soft and smooth. The greens allowed the ball to roll true. Because this is the "Lakes" course, there was plenty of water to provide a challenge. The views of the mountains provided a nice backdrop. Overall, good but not as good as it once was.

Great mountain vistas

In spite of a wet winter the Ranch course has faired well. We really enjoyed playing the course yesterday.

The locals buy and 11 round pass.

Good course bad value

A good course, but not worth even the discount we got on GolfNow. There are better courses in the Carson Valley for much less. This is about a $45.00 course.

VERY disappointed that the restaurant was "closed," because the chef didn't show up for work. When you pay $75 for a round, you expect the restaurant and other "extras" will be functional.

Good round ruined

It was a beautiful day, except there was a 1.5 hour frost delay and I didn't check. Everyone was crammed onto the course in a short period of time trying to catch up. No marshal to be seen or least do anything. Front side took 2.5 hours and backside was even worse pace. We had other things to do and had to quit before the finish. We did find as we made our way in that there was a big gap between the lead group and those that followed. Waited on every shot.

Layout was fun. Very interesting holes and views. Disappointed with the greens. Very bumpy and hard to count on for rolling anything approaching true. They do a great job of growing the rough, however.

We would go back. But I would expect pace of play and conditions to be better or not again.

Great course

Awesome course. Fun layout and pretty challenging. Very nice for the price. There were very few people playing on the Sunday I played and the course was in great conditions. I didn't shoot well but I can't wait to play there again.
